So far, DAY 13 hasn't been great. I'm getting cystic acne in places I usually never have to worry about. For the past 2-3 days I've had a small/medium cysts growing on my forehead, hairline area and on my nose(!!it's big and red!!). Places I rarely have acne ffs! I think my hormones are trying to find middle ground (at least I hope) because YAZ has extended my period to 12 days. I will wait for my hormones to return from war. 

I've also started doing LED blue/red light therapy twice a week at a skincare clinic. Will go to my fourth session tomorrow. I think it helps? I've been using my Foreo ESPADA portable LED light daily as well for consistency in LED treatment. I have noticed that consistent use (and maybe including clinical sessions) has shown some improvements to the 1-2 cystic pimples I've had (near my hairline and on my chin). The one near my hairline disappeared and the one on my chin has almost been defeated! As for the aforementioned cysts on my forehead and nose, no luck :' ( 

My self confidence has been pretty low. I rarely leave the house unless I have to work or attend an appointment. Like most people suffering adult acne, it's been difficult and taxing on my mental health and social life. I loathe attending social events because I know I won't leave the house without makeup. The whole process of applying colour correctors, foundation and concealer drives me mental!! Don't get me wrong, I love make up...but not for reasons of wanting to conceal my imperfections.
